sales. >> china has always taken a responsible and prudent attitude. apart to adhering to u.n. security council resolutions, china also follows strict regulations. >> over the past five years, china has more than doubled its sales of military hardware. united states continues to be the no. 1 arms exporter chalking up nearly one-third of all global sales. russia comes in third. followed by germany with 7% in france with 6%. now china has pushed britain to sixth place with 5% of the market. annual sales are now worth some 1.3 trillion euro. >> more them 500 representatives of various political groups have gathered in yemen for the first meeting of a national dialogue conference. >> the reconciliation talks will be drafting a new constitution and preparing for a full democratic election next year. >> we will be talking with an analyst about the hopes for progress in just a moment, but let's look at the challenges facing them. >> after months of protest, the demands were met. he left office just over one year ago. he rolled yemen for more than three decades. it came at a price. parliament g
, and unfortunately the increase in civilian casualties are going to be the price paid for that. heather: the u.n. now says that they are going to go in, they're going to investigate this. in fact, three separate occasions where chemical weapons have allegedly been used in syria. but what type of access will they get and how will we even be able to prove this? >> well, i'm skeptical about that to be sure. this is a rogue regime. assad will only do what is is in his interest and his singular focus is preservation of his regime and to stay in power so he will do nothing to undermine that. if he has to lie or deny with the u.n. inspectors he will certainly do it but the u.n. inspectors, if they're competent like the ones we had it iraq they will certainly know what assad is up to and be able to reveal he is not giving them the kind of access they should have. heather: finally, what the is greatest danger if in fact syria has the chemical weapons and they're using them? secondly, president obama said this would be a game-changer. those were his words if in fact it is proven chemical weapons are being used
is a suspect to embargo. -- is subject to u.n. embargo. there is so much at stake here, if you could -- what specific leverage might the united states employed in those direct discussions that are taking place with the iraqis? intodo not want to go great detail here about our discussions with iraqis. we have discussed the united states resolution with the iraqis. in a sense, in the end, what matters is the government of iraq understand that its own interests will be best served not by facilitating the iranian efforts to prolong the crisis in syria, but rather in bringing about a transitional government that will have good relations with the government in iraq. >> understanding by the iraqi government would be helpful. action by the iraqi government would be necessary to ensure this takes place. i would like to focus on two types of aid. one is military. there is a difference of opinion here on capitol hill. about whether or not provide direct military assistance to the opposition. the argument is made that it is really hard to know where these weapons are going, that they might wind up in th
to go down the u.n. road, the route of moving and international organizations, that is not road that will lead anywhere. let's focus on a road that has the potential to lead somewhere. i did not mention on the israeli side, i said there was a convergence on syria, but there will be private discussions on syria in israel. there'll be a private discussion with palestinians on israel as well. you have four hundred thousand palestinians in syria who are in a very vulnerable position. imagine that that is not currently part of a private conversation. sure, there'll be a focus on peace, but there will also be a focus on this. what are we doing to safeguard the palestinians that are there? goingordan, you're also to have a public and private pension. englander sends a signal of interest, which it is important, but the private pension has to focus on syria as well. you have four hundred thousand assyrian refugees in jordan today. 100,000 additional since the beginning of this year. if that pace continues, you could have 700,000 by june. the impact on jordan is actually very hard to cont
that it wasn't, when the people who were watching this knew it was a terrorist attack. >>anna: u.n. ambassador susan rice blamed the deadly attack on a video. the f.b.i. investigating how a man was able to pose as a pilot and gain ablg ses to the -- access to a u.s. airways cockpit flight in philadelphia. the man had on an air france uniform and i.d. and ended up in the jump seat behind the captain. he was caught when he failed to show real credentials. the airlines says no passengers were ever in danger. those are your headlines this friday morning. >>steve: meanwhile president obama on his way now to bethlehem. he visited israel's memorial to the holocaust victims a short time ago during the third day of his first presidential trip to israel. >>brian: we're live in jerusalem following the trip. hey, leland. >> good morning, brian. the issue from the president is not so much what he's saying. he's saying the same thing in terms of the substantive issues about iran and about a palestinian state. but more about how he is saying it. he's going out of his way to show great empathy towards the isr
? some syrian rebels have been designated as foreign terrorist organizations. they have captured u.n. peacekeepers after being released later. the u.s. must take necessary precautions and due diligence. can you give us more information about the opposition? they are not just syrian national. who are far and fighters have the islamic militants from neighboring countries. post-asidevern in a syria? on weapons of mass destruction, are reports correct the syrian regime might possess up to 50 tons of weapons-grade nuclear materials in its stockpile? true, willports are the u.s. call for an emergency meeting to discuss this and if assad does not grant inspectors immediate access to all nuclear facilities and stockpiles so they can be protected, will the u.s. impose and mediate, comprehensive, and painful sanctions? will we do sell acting with the european union? lastly, on the countries that are aiding the brutality of regime, these countries continue to provide military assistance, weaponry, and they seek to further the illegal weapons program in supporting these foreign terrorist organiz
look at the reform, you will want singapore's ambassador of the u.n. you tried to get india on china vetoes and you tried to take nigeria, the south africans get upset or vice versa. it's never going to happen. >> but you're absolutely right. and that's precisely the problem that for every japan, there's a south kor that says no. all the losers, the mexicos, the pakistans, the south koreas, others actually become winners and they get automatic seat in the security council at every fourth turn. now, that's a remarkable improvement for countries that have to spend millions of dollars to try to get re-elected back to the security council every four years. now, i'm saying, you have a seat. so, it's a win, win, win for the small states, the middle powers and the great powers. that's why i think eventually, not right away, the 777 formula can break the current lock on security council reform. >> great thing about this book, a lot of insight at 30,000 feet and also insight at the ground level because you live through these processes. pleasure to have you on. >> my pleasure. thank you for ha

prime minister said. >> hasn't yet reached the red line that i described in my speech at the u.n. they're getting closer. >> we do have a common assessment on these schedules, on intelligence. we share that intelligence. and we don't have any -- any argument about it. >> whether you hear that, do you worry that the world may say prime minister netanyahu has cried wolf? he said this was urgent. we had a time and now he is saying wait another year. >> i'm confident that prime minister netanyahu will do everything to defend israel and not allow iran to acquire a nuclear weapon. and i'm also hopeful that president obama will indeed, you know, keep our backs or have our backs as he called it. i think america respects the notion that we can't outsource our security to anyone else. and if push comes to shove, israel will defend itself at any price. we hope that we won't need to get to that and the way to prevent it is to create a viable, a credible threat, a paralyzing threat to iran which we're not there quite yet. >> on the peace process, a very crucial topic here. president obama said, loo

quickly it will not be automobile to be detected by u.n. weapons inspectors and u.s. intelligence service that. is real concern that is the issue prime minister netanyahu and president obama have to agree. uma: on issue of syria, chemical weapons, what are the thoughts at this moment? is there viable evidence to say those weapons have actually been used? >> certainly those are the claims and i think there will be a u.n. investigation into this but that clearly has been a red line president obama has drawn and needs to draw and it will be very critical that if there are chemical weapons being used by the assad regime president obama responds accordingly. that is another red line he is drawing. that is red line irisraelies will be watching and iranians. is this president serious about committing to red lines and honoring the red lines. uma: quickly with obama speaking to young people in israel, that was very interesting strategy on his part because he knows he often does well in those kind of settings, at that type of theater backdrop. >> i think that's right. president obama shown in the u
